If your illness prevents you from attending the surgery, you can ask for a home visit by telephoning 01862 893322. If possible please telephone before 10am. Our reception staff may ask for further information to enable the doctors to prioritise home visits.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
